Sire is Faansie Basson's wildly successful Don with Wyatt's Dam being Maureen Robinson's Eft. Another strong trial and work dog. Maturing a bit slowly but Wyatt is beginning to show signs of being a very good dog.
With the time given Wyatt is doing well, qualified for the 2019 USBCHA Nursery Championships and, as a 3 year old, has won his first Open trial. Wyatt is maturing into a very useful farm dog, and with more miles, a strong trial dog.
We lost a few years to the Covid Pandemic but Wyatt has come out of it well. At 6 he was 8th at the 2022 National Finals and has been invited to be a member of the U.S. Team competing at the 2023 World Championships in Ireland.
From Belgium and the BaW kennel of Wiet van Dongen. Very excited for this little girl. Daoiri is shaping up to be quite the little dog. I love her mind and her business like attitude. A lot of feel but still with an intent walk up. Sheep seem to take her seriously. She has a great little mind and is quite the cool customer. A lot of fun to work.
We had an Oops! litter. Julie's two dogs Gwen and Khal. Gwen from Faansie's Don and Kahl bred by Laura Hinnekens from Scotland. I have to admit I stole Beag from Julie. She is tiny but looking fantastic. Hoping to have her ready for the 2023 Nursery Finals.
Tip, now retired...
A son of Suzy Applegate's famous Buzz and Sharon Freilich's lovely Nan, Tip was purchased at the young age of 14 months. A very natural dog and willing partner, Tip showed promise at a very early stage with Dave.
Tip was 9th at the 2012 Nursery Finals, 5th in 2013 at the Region 1 Double Lift Finals, won the 2014 qualifying round at Meeker, and was 13th in the 2014 USBCHA Double Lift Finals. In 2015 Tip was 6th in the Meeker Classic Double Lift Final, after being 13th in the Soldier Hollow Double Lift Final, while finishing up the year ranked 16 in the USBCHA Points Rankings and Dog of the Year for Washington state.
Tip participated at Meeker four years, making the Double Lift Championship round three of the 4 as well as making the Double Lift Championship round both times he attended the Bluegrass Classic in Kentucky. He was the Washington Dog of the Year 4 years running and last but certainly not least, Tip was selected to the team representing the United States at the 2017 World Trial in the Netherlands.
Truly a once in a lifetime dog, Tip was the best possible partner a handler could ever ask for.
